I was initially introduced to aromatic salt scrubs while studying with Cheryl Hoard in the aromatherapy 101 course years ago. I learned that they offer the
skin a radiant glow and stimulate circulation of the blood and lymph. They are tolerated by all but the most sensitive skin types. I cannot take credit for the
recipe below as I feel it was given to me while preparing myself for a workshop years ago. I quickly found out that it helped relieve my brother-in-law’s stiff
fingers when he could not even close his hands, 30 seconds of application and a rinse and he had his complete painless grasp back again. I found that many of my clients with pain can use it in the shower to alleviate painful muscle and joint aches. It does wonders for my teenagers when their face breaks out with acne. I use it at least weekly as I feel it lifts off the residual energetic static of my work week. When we used it as an exercise at my journey home retreat it was voted the favorite part of the retreat by many.

I recommend preparing this with your mind chatter cleared and your intention for use set.


One cup of fine sea salt

2 tablespoons of Cheryl’s Herbs Frankincense and Myrrh Soap and Shampoo

One large pinch about 1 teaspoon, of dried rosemary gently broken into 1/4 inch pieces

Wet skin thoroughly in shower with warm water (Ideally for at least five minutes). Turn off shower, massage mixture over entire body. Pay particular
attention to tops of shoulders, heart, back and chest. The intention is that your washing away lingering energies that keep you from being joyful,
compassionate and love in action, or anything that may block your ability to clearly use all of your senses. Leave on for desired time. I find 1 to 2 minutes
is adequate. Shower off and visualize the stresses, disappointments, judgments of others etc. going down the drain.

The follow up polishing process Is a simple two-step process. Spray rose hydrosol all over and then smoothed on a very fine layer of calendula cream to
raise the vibration of the field and finalize the clearing and polishing intention. For skin with acne jojoba cream is an ideal replacement for the
calendula cream.

I would love to hear how this works for you if you would like to let me know drop me a note
